“Do it if you have the chance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

I did my Advanced Open Water in Koh Tao and every dive was different with so much to see! Each site is a wonder to behold and would recommend that everyone get in the water if they have the opportunity, it's definately worth it!

Some really great spots on this little island, and there are quite a few to choose from!
Shark Bay and Japanese Gardens were among the faves

“Mecca of diving.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

One of the cheapest places worldwide do learn to dive but also great diving itself, lots of marine life and also seasonally big fish like a Whale Sharks or Bull Sharks.

“Koh Tao means Great diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

With a huge amount of dive sites within easy reach, Koh Tao offers some of the most versatile diving in the world. There are better dive sites in the world, for sure, but the versatility of diving on Koh Tao means that - no matter the weather and time of year - the dive centers can offers good or great diving. My own favourite dive site is Chumporn, but also this dive site changes with the seasons and the weather: it can be anything from decent to absolutely one of the best dive sites in the world.
Koh Tao also offers periodic opportunities to see Whale Sharks, Tiger Sharks - and turtles are quite common in general. What I think is special about Koh Tao compared to other diving islands is the amount or rather the dense concentration of fish life and corals on many of the dive sites.

Had a chance to do an afternoon dive with a whaleshark at chumphon pinnacle followed by good visibility at the navy wreck close to nang yuan island. Great dive spot, especially for beginners !!!
